To Shape: Make a well in the center of the dough. Fill with some dried shrimp floss and gather the edges of the dough and seal well. Roll and shape the dough into a ball. Then place the dough on a floured board, and press down lightly with your palm. Continue the process with the remainder dough and shrimp floss.

To fry: Heat enough oil over medium heat. Add the shaped dough and fry until golden brown in color. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towel. Serve warm or a room temperature.
